CNET: TiVo to tighten grip on children’s viewing

Cnet seems to have a lead on today’s big announcement from TiVo:

In a new twist on helping parents control what children watch on television, TiVo will announce today a service that lets its video recorders limit children to watching shows approved by one of two groups promoting family programming.

Parental controls have been built into most television and cable set-top boxes for the last decade, allowing parents to limit their children’s viewing to shows that have certain ratings as assigned by the networks. TiVo as well had a parental control system based on these ratings. Many digital cable boxes offer even more options, letting parents select individual programs to block.
